Antique Quilts

Hello Everyone,

Joe and I headed over to the Alameda Point Antiques Faire last Sunday. The event is held the first Sunday of the month on the island of Alameda, just across the bay from San Francisco.

There are over 800 vendors. We managed to see about 2/3 of them in four hours. Then called it quits and drove home. The antique show is only about 40 minutes from our house in the East Bay Area. We venture over to the show a couple of times a year. It is complete overload by the time you walk up and down the aisles.

There is so much to see. I only took pictures of the antique quilts and linens.

There were wheelbarrows full of quilts.

I love the old linens on the clothes dryer.

If you are looking for anything "vintage" this is the place where you will find it. You won't find anything new here. The items have to be at least 20 years old.

I hope you all have a wonderful week quilting. I've been busy writing up the instructions for the Madrigal pattern. I'm trying to get it completed so I can offer it as one of the choices in my giveaway. Check out the September 30th post and make a comment to be entered in the giveaway. Or shoot me an email to to be entered into the drawing.

As always,


  1. Lynn, what wonderful treasures. How fortunate you are to live near something like that. Thanks for sharing, one question, does some of your inspiration come from those lovely oldies but goodies?

  2. I love the quilts you showed, but my favourite is definetely the DWR quilt in the first picture. Do you ever come home with any of them?
